White butter sauce

  • Time cooking time: 10-15 minutes
  • Yield Serves: 6 to 8


    3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
    3 tablespoons dry white wine
    2 tablespoons shallots, finely chopped
    1 tablespoon heavy cream
    8 ounces unsalted butter, cold
    to taste salt and ground white pepper


    In a small heavy pan, boil the vinegar, wine and shallots until all liquid is reduced. Add the cream, and re-boil until completely reduced.
    Whisk in the cold butter, a few pieces at the time. The sauce thickens and becomes creamy.
    Note: do not overheat the sauce, as the sauce separates and loses its creamy texture. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    Keep the sauce warm over a pan of warm water. Serve as soon as possible.
